Last Monday we hosted Harmony Day for K-2 students at the MAS, the Maitland Lutheran School, Point Pearce Aboriginal School and the Maitland Children's Centre. Our theme was 'it's more fun when everyone's invited' and the event was based on the story of 'Ophelia Orange and the Fabuloulsy Funny Fruit Salad Party'.
Children and teachers from all four education centres joined in making party invitations, party hats and a musical instrument. They sang 'Fruit Salad' (by the Wiggles) and danced the 'Fruit Salad Hokey Pokey'. Thank you to Sarah Atkins and Emma Atkins for organising activities, to Beth Hector for making the fruit salad (yummy yummy!) and to my Year 5/6 helpers who ran the PA and PowerPoint, helped the younger children in activities and danced the Fruit Salad so well at the end!
